Gil Weiss wrote a chilling blog post just a day before the men disappeared on a 20,000-foot glacier-capped peak in Peru. A rumination posted by Mr Weiss on mountaineering blog pullharder.org suggests the New Yorker suspected the Peruvian conquest may be his last.
'I sit here in a coffee shop in Huaraz, Peru, planning another foray into the Cordillera Blanca,' Mr Weiss wrote on July 10, 'where the sense that one's life is in the hands of the mountains can be as blinding as the endless white glaciers, and a thirst for glory can darken our better judgment more than the blackness of night.'
We are, I know not how, double in ourselves, so that what we believe we disbelieve, and cannot rid ourselves of what we condemn. (Michel de Montaigne)
